wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 7:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

Common Core Meets Aging Education Technology | Intelligent Enterprise Blog

Common Core Meets Aging Education Technology | Intelligent Enterprise Blog | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

The Common Core State Standards program represents a huge shift in what teachers teach and students learn in the K-12 grades. The standards, which are focused on college and career readiness, rely heavily on effective use of technology for instruction, collaborative learning, assessment and data analysis.

 

However, as schools and districts across the United States begin to implement the standards -- 45 states plus the District of Columbia, four territories and the Department of Defense Education Activity have adopted them -- many are finding that there is a significant gap between the technology they need and the tech they actually have.

 

Several Common Core standards specifically require the use of technology. For example, a Grade 5 writing standard mandates that, "with some guidance and support from adults, [students will] use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of two pages in a single sitting."

 

Even if not explicitly stated, the level of collaboration, research and critical thinking inherent in the standards will require that educators and students have access to -- and knowledge about -- fairly advanced hardware, software and services. Further, the standardized assessments measuring students' understanding will be computer-based.

 

Unfortunately, what many schools are finding is that they don't have the technology they need, don't know what technology they need, or have the technology but not the knowledge and training to use it effectively.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Education in our post-modern times require the technology mention here even without Commom Core if education is done right. The author is correct to access that obtaining the technology is only half the challenge. Really it is far,far less than half the challenge.

 

Failure to allow time for teacher training, experimentation and serious teacher planning to change approaches is usually left to the teacher figure all this out in the after hours of school or ignoring students to experiment with  equipment. Those are the only two options normally. "Workshops are ususally given, but not always. The problem is that the work shop is not much better than obtaining the technology alone.

 

Working technology into a classroom takes time...The same time teacher are already using to prepare for the class using references and materials they already have available only adding to that or changing the program dramatically takes far more time. Administrative work also must be done. Traditional demonstrations and live interactions must be prepared and set-up, materials still need to be ordered and work evaluated and questions still must be answered and let's never forget what Common Core ignores.... This will not eliminate time required for addressing personal dramas and behavior...nor will be Utopia anymore than any other workplace. School is not an assembly line. Life happens and it distracts... even though industry and educational reformers would like life to just go away and let us work with perfection for the purpose of making and spending money...I begin to wonder if we are not missing the total concept of living and being alive, family, community and purpose. Students would not need to be pushed if they could be allowed to become inspired.

 

Teachers often have to pay for real upgrades to their class out of their own time and even with real money for serious training. Special technology classes are often only found during the same hours teachers are teaching.... thus these are not available to them. Make no mistake...when a teacher is learning something new... that teacher must take the focus off current classroom activities to address future classroom activities. There in lies the challenge and often failure of many hopeful programs. Perhaps it might be that teacher's too need serious time during the year and during fresh workdays, not just squeezed in between everything else to make change happen faster than educational material companies can upgrade.

 

Teachers need time to learn the technology, really plan and setup new techniques without students or other demands to divide attention. Finding a day a week or two-week training times for more than one or two teachers is nearly unheard of in education. On the job training doesn't work with 30 to 120 people per day asking you questions of all types while you teach. Serious upgrades through courses or training nearly always must be found and paid for by each teacher during their summer when the kids are not there and they are not paid for work.  This is why new technology and other serious change isn't going to happen in school until education material providers hand it all to the staff ready to use and implement. A few will make the time to do it on the their own, but life happens and most teachers will do well to use what is already ready to use in classrooms... and 1+1=2 in the end really hasn't changed.

 

Common core uses technology to test. Common Core has great potential to be an expensive, new, lock step program used to teach the test. Many argue it is just another type of industrial style education to create students for yesterday's industrial complexes, which many do not see as a direction for the future as we move to robots for more and more work. This is not open, self-paced or student directed education, it is not flexible and does not encourage discovery learning or allow time for failures, which are a huge part of really learning and innovating fresh ideas. Students must demonstrate set achievements at set times.... They are on an educational time clock.

Posts about flipped classroom written by Jackie Gerstein, Ed.D.

 

The Flipped Classroom has jumped onto the education radar in recent years as a way to potentially alter pedagogical and instructional practices by utilizing emerging technologies. In its simplest form, the flipped classroom is a model of learning where students watch content-related videos on their own time, freeing up classroom time for questions and discussion, group work, experiments, and hands-on and other experiential activities.

N.C. budget ends K-12 teacher tenure

N.C. budget ends K-12 teacher tenure | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The compromise budget announced last night by House and Senate leaders adopts major chunks of the Senate education plan, phasing out "career status" for K-12 teachers, commonly called tenure, in favor of a tiered contract system.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

"The budget also ends the practice of giving salary supplements to teachers with master's degrees starting with the 2014-15 school year, which was also part of the Senate position." Just a tidbit from the article..Did it get your attention after spending all that time to get those masters and specialist degrees?

 

YEA! The plan shows more money for technology! This is the education reform model going around the country pushed by ALEC sponsored politicians that push their agenda and business interest. (http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php/ALEC_2013_Bills)

This agenda  includes harvesting the something like 83 billion tax payer education dollars through private ownership of schools. 

 

Think of the other spin off wins you could have spending those dollars if you own schools then use funds to buy from other educational product holdings you possess....WOW! JACK POT!!!! Ownership of knowledge lock, stock and barrel!.....That's a business plan that will get you more riches and power than anyone could imagine!

 

The Budget also pays damages to those 7,000+ in North Carolina made victims of eugenics (forced sterilization)...…Not sure why that was listed in the education reform budget and it looks like the victims mostly died off with no offspring to share the money.

FCC Approves Process to Move Forward on E-Rate

FCC Approves Process to Move Forward on E-Rate | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The Federal Communications Commission has unanimously approved moving ahead with a rule-making process to make changes to the E-rate program.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

BIG NEWS!!!

 

Public comments open for a while.

 

This article is about funding school technology....The FCC just voted to upgrade schools for fast speeds in the next five years and make it easier to do and get funding…



Notice where this info comes from....A private for-profit investment group. Should your tax dollars be spent to buy a for-profit charter school's equipment? I would rather see the money used given directly to student's families to upgrade their services and BYOD than that. This could also support development and design of ways to upgrade and repair rather then constantly trash and buy from scratch. Should public money be spent on public ownership of critical community shared responsibilities like education.

 

Do corporations stay in your community when they can make more profits faster somewhere else?  Should we make religion for profit? They could probably turn Church attendance around. Volunteers would no longer be needed and more people would activily participate if they knew they could get fired and lose their money. Bribery and threats go along way to encouraging participation. Pay people and threaten to fire them as all for-profts do. Is it how learning should occur. Learning involves failure as well as success or nothing new was tried out or thought about. Learning  also involves changing and thinking of things no one else ever thought of./
